Well, it’s official: Winter is here. I’m not thrilled because it means short days, long nights and the need for multiple layers of flannel.
This is also the time of year that I struggle with maintaining a healthy living routine the most. I need a serious kick in the arse to get out the door and doing anything. This winter is no exception. I don’t have a training plan to start until February when I start training for the Fargo half marathon and no plan=couch potato.
I’m determined not to let that happen this winter. After all the hard work I put into training for the WFPS half marathon, I really don’t want to let myself go and have to start from scratch come February. I have my eye on some lofty running goals for next year and in order to make them, I need to be diligent.
So enters: The Plan.
I’m actually not 100% sure what “The Plan” is exactly but it will entail running 2-3 days a week with my long runs being done outside in mother nature’s glory with my lovely running friend, Leslie. It will entail doing 1-2 classes a week at the gym and it will entail getting back to strength training. Mama misses her guns!
How do you motivate yourself to stay active during the winter months?
